An experiment has probability p of success, q of failure and 1 - p - q of neither, If independent trials are repeated over and over until either success or failure is obtained, what is the probability of an ultimate success?

  • Math -

    There are only two outcomes, success or failure. I don't know how you could have neither.

    p + q = 1

    Therefore, p = 1-q
